Question: Can someone explain this in layman terms:

Results of 2.5 yr old with sturge weber diagnosis at birth MRI follow up:

A new 8 millimeter focus of susceptability is seen in the righr frontoparietal subcortical white matter as decribed above which is favoured to represent a cavernoma or focus of hemosiderin desposition with no surrounding edema, associated XXXXXXX affect or adjacent developmental venous anomaly seen. Multiple tine developmental venous anomaly supratentorially (right greater than left) are however noted.

My daughter has no seizures to date (only has glaucoma in right eye and facial port wine stain on right side and her neurologist says that these results are nothing to be concerned about. Please explain in layman terms and if you disagree and if you think it would be safe to travel based on these results?

Thank you!
